Las Vegas is a crazy place where anything goes. For my first adventure to Vegas I stayed at the Flamingo Hotel & Casino, centrally located opposite Caesar’s Palace on the famous Las Vegas Strip. The hotel was perfect for our first trip to Las Vegas and to experience what Vegas had to offer!
Our Deluxe Queen room was spacious, clean and modern thanks to its recent renovations. The great location of this hotel is a major selling point, and there are endless meal and gambling options both within the casino or only a short walk outside. The views of the strip from our room were amazing and we also witnessed countless infamous Vegas weddings taking place below in the Casino’s garden chapels. Vegas was everything that we had hoped it would be!
My favourite part of the hotel is their beautiful outdoor areas that include a tropical wildlife habitat that is the home of their famous flamingos. It was really surreal to be staying in a hotel that had actual flamingos! It was the first time I had ever seen flamingos.
There is also a 15-acre Caribbean style outdoor paradise with swimming pools, slides, bars and endless palm trees.
During my stay the casino was mid renovation and there were many construction sites outside the casino which made parking and drop off areas quite confusing at times.
The casino itself is also quite smoky in comparison to other casinos we visited during our stay in Vegas which I wasn’t a fan of.
However the Flamingo Hotel & Casino Las Vegas was reasonably priced and for its great mid-strip location I would recommend it as an option for your next visit to Vegas.
